Sep 25, 2018
We are pleased to announce the release of our SR7013 which will deliver the Marantz acclaimed sound quality, thanks to unique sound tuning, all-new components in the transformer and signal processing sections, audiophile digital to analogue conversion and a Current Feedback pre-amplifier section using our HDAM technology. There’s even a high-quality phono stage for those who prefer their music on vinyl.

We are pleased to announce the release of our SR7013 which will deliver the Marantz acclaimed sound quality, thanks to unique sound tuning, all-new components in the transformer and signal processing sections, audiophile digital to analogue conversion and a Current Feedback pre-amplifier section using our HDAM technology. There’s even a high-quality phono stage for those who prefer their music on vinyl.

The SR7013 has nine 200W channels of amplification, with twin subwoofer outputs to make the most of Dolby Atmos, DTS: X/DTS Virtual:X and Auro 3D soundtracks, and 11.2-channel processing and preouts to allow it to be expanded for even more immersive sound. It’s also one of the very first home cinema products to feature IMAX Enhanced capability: enabled via a free firmware update, this will combine with IMAX digitally remastered 4K HDR content and DTS audio technology to offer new levels of quality in sight and sound.

No fewer than eight HDMI inputs – including one on the front panel – and three outputs allow the SR7013 to handle the latest (and future) 4K video formats – 4K/60 Hz full-rate pass-through, 4:4:4 color resolution, HDR and BT.2020, plus Dolby Vision compatibility and Hybrid Log Gamma. It can also upscale legacy video formats to 1080p and 4k Ultra HD (60Hz), converting analogue video inputs to HDMI, and supports eARC for simpler high-resolution home cinema sound connectivity.

Its flexible surround sound amplification allows a variety of 3D audio configurations, including discrete height channels, from full 11-channel DTS:X configurations through to 5.1.2-, 5.1.4-, 7.1.2- or even 7.1.4-channel Dolby Atmos with an additional stereo amp. Set-up of such systems is simplified by Audyssey MultEQ XT32 auto-calibration, plus Audyssey Dynamic Volume, LFC, Sub EQ HT and Dynamic EQ, aided by the built-in Setup Assistant and enhanced Graphical User Interface. The SR7013 can also be used with the optional Audyssey app to customize the surround set-up and speaker/room compensation, allowing the user to achieve a perfect sound in any space.

A Web User Interface can be used to access and control the SR7013 remotely, and other Custom Installation features include Smart Remote Management, Domotz and ihiji support and HDMI Diagnostics to analyze and optimize source – receiver – sink connection.

The SR7013 can play music in ultra-high resolution (up to DSD 5.6MHz) from network storage or USB drives and access streaming services including Deezer, Internet radio, Spotify Connect, Amazon Music and Tidal; it also has built-in Bluetooth and AirPlay2 capability for wireless music streaming from portable devices and computers. HEOS integration means it can combine with other HEOS-capable products, from wireless speakers to remote amplifiers and receivers, to create a complete multi-room music system, all controlled from the HEOS app. What’s more, the Alexa HEOS HOME ENTERTAINMENT skill allows voice control of the SR7013 from an Amazon Echo device.

For all this flexibility, which even extends to HDMI outputs to feed screens in additional rooms, the SR7013 is all about performance, with the ability to control and power a complete high-end home cinema and music system with our famous sound, plus pristine video quality.
